Description Joel Madero 2014-06-23 19:06:37 UTC
1. Open writer
2. Insert image
3. Right click on image and left click on "Picture..."
4. Click on "Transparency" tab

Observed: Currently you can only control image background transparency here

Request: Able to control image transparency as well and this to coincide with values given in the image toolbar that come up when you left click once on an image.

I think that this is expected when you click on the transparency tab but it's currently missing.

related to issue 80373 of course

It is very frustrating not to be able to find an option in the main menu/properties, and only find it on the "shortcut" toolbars.  Personally I would put the transparency setting on the image tab.  (Still needed in 5.4.)

Confirmed in (x64) on windows 8.1

Please fix this adding an image transparency setting in the image properties dialog.

At the very least improve UI so that things are understandable : when setting Transparency in image properties dialog, one expects that this transparency is applied to the image. If this setting is for the background then display "background transparency" and add a tooltip to guide the user to the right command !

What a loss of time for new users !

Thank you for listening
